“You can’t go sailing” the irritated dermatologist exclaimed, “you have stage four cancer, you are dying! Do you not understand!” This was the start of a journey, which resulted in being tumour free. This is our story and how we did it.
This journey was the basis of Meme Grant’s book. How We Beat Cancer: The Natural Way

VITAMIN C is used to repair the damage from the high levels of sugar and insulin. This damage affects your vision, the arteries, kidney and nervous system. Vitamin C is also necessary to heal insulin resistance. Lemon juice from a bottle that you buy on the shelf is all pasteurized, it is cooked, it is heated. There is no vitamin C left.
The juice from one fresh squeezed lemon, which is a little more than an ounce and the amount often used to make 1 cup of lemonade, provides about 19 milligrams of vitamin C.
High blood sugar can destroy your organs. What you can do about it?
Glucotoxicity (toxicity of glucose, which is sugar) causes a massive oxidation effect, which is like rusting inside your body. It can happen in your arteries, brain, or nerves.
Your body starts to heal it with proteins, calcium, and cholesterol that form plaques. That is the body’s equivalent of a bandaid. (By the way, diabetics that consume antioxidants from real food can lower the effects of glucotoxicity.)
Then you have glycation, caused when glucose and protein are combined then heated, such as with barbequed ribs that you then eat. This can cause some proteins in your body to become unusable and cause damage anywhere within your body.
These are the four main organs at risk from high blood sugar:
